Me too. There is so much I would like to see. Within a year's time, Ganbachi has promised Danger Man. I have looked on Amazon and a used box set is over 80.00!

My favorite serials are ATOM MAN VS. SUPERMAN (found a copy at Big Lots for $3 awhile back) and CAPTAIN VIDEO put out by VCI. Great fun and superb quality on both.

Another couple I'd like to see are MYSTERIOUS ISLAND and THE LOST PLANET. I'm a big fan of Sam Katzman's Columbia serials for sure.

Is that the same mysterious island where the civil war soldiers escape from a POW camp and land on a island that is... mysterious, and they meet Captain Nemo there too? Is that PD? I have that one but the video quality is pretty poor.

Yep, that's the one. I have a possible source for it, I just need to send him a check. One chapter of it was a "extra bonus" on that DVD box set of Sam Katzman-produced '50s movies including THE GIANT CLAW, THE WEREWOLF, etc. That chapter was great fun, just enough to make me want the rest of it!

Wow! The 1951 serial Mysterious Island would be so cool to have here, if it's PD. I have the 1961 movie, which is great fun.

Well...the serial is a bit strange. It has a girl from the planet Mercury wielding a raygun...not exactly Jules Verne. But it does have Richard Crane in the cast, aka Rocky Jones Space Ranger.

Bizarre characters and bad actors - sounds great! BTW, I looked for a renewal notice at USCO and found none.
